Hawthorne, Chelsea Monette (Marriage - 8 Nov. 1942)

The marriage of Eli Monroe Bunnell, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Bunnell, and Miss Chelsea Monette Hawthorne, daughter of Mrs. Mary Hawthorne, took place Sunday, Nov. 8. Vows were repeated in the Baptist church at Woodville, Calif., at 12:45 p.m. with the Rev. Jane Lewis officiating.

During the ceremony, "I Love You Truly," by Carrie Jacobs-Bond was sung by Mrs. Gilbert.

For the occasion the bride wore a suit of soldier blue with silver fox collar with military blue accessories. A shoulder corsage of gardenias and yellow rosebuds made up her ensemble.

The couple’s only attendants were the bride’s brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Cone, of Woodville.

Mrs. Cone wore a tan checked suit with British tan accessories. Her corsage was made of gardenias with red roses.

The groom’s mother wore a dark blue dress with white accessories and a shoulder corsage of baby pompons.

A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride’s brother and sister-in-law from 1:30 to 4:00 o’clock. Large baskets of white and purple chrysanthemums were used in the home as well as church decorations. A four-tier wedding cake surmounted by a wedding bell and gardenia was the centerpiece for the bridal table. About 35 guests attended the reception, among whom were Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Bunnell of Abbotsford and his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Boileau, of Los Angeles.

The groom, who has been employed at Lockheed’s air craft factory the past two years, is a graduate of the Stevens Point high school and also attended State Teachers’ college at Stevens Point.

Mr. and Mrs. Bunnell are at home to their friends at 2436 Echo Park, Los Angeles, Calif.
